COSE 2016 West of England Club of the Year
We are a very open and friendly Archery Club based on the edge of the Gordano Valley at The Downs School in Wraxall, North Somerset.
Our vision is to promote and develop the sport of archery and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all.
We aim to achieve this by ensuring we have a highly motivated and professional team of coaches and officials dedicated to the principles of equitable practice.
The club is committed to providing archery as an all inclusive sport and actively promotes the sport as a Triple A sport for all the family. Triple A = All Ability Archery.

Unfortunately, no club came forward this year to host this popular and fun Tournament.
If your club, might be able to host the tournament next year could you please contact Ann Lewin the County Secretary for more information.
Gordano Valley Archers were proud to host the County Inter-Club handicap tournament for 5 years. I’m sure it was the highlight of the year for some novice archers, not only giving them a chance to shoot at their first County tournament, but also as a handicap shoot, there was the opportunity to win over some more experienced archers and take home that important silverware.
Could any archers who shot and won a trophy last year please arrange for it to be returned to the County Secretary either direct or via your Club representative.
